    Oh, the irony! Flip teaching someone how to “behave”! :-)

    There is no situation so bad that Flip can’t make it worse. :-)

    Given the name of the ice company yesterday and the talk about paying for it today, I wonder if McCay had a problem with his ice bill. :-)

    Like ubbm I heard the explanation that it was to encourage people to continue eating when they had a cold, even if they didn’t feel like it.

    ARGH!! I had multiple blank lines in there, and they all got removed!

    Spoler alert:

    Several of the characters develop substantially over the run of the comic. Nemo becomes more assertive and stands up for himself. In the process he gains Flip’s respect and semi-reforms the rogue.

    McCay repeatedly mentioned and occasionally showed locations all around the world. The main reason was to promote the strip in those areas. One of the more unusual was a footrace around the world. The one much later in the strip set in the northeastern United States was spectacular, especially the Palisades sequence.

    I wonder if the designers of the Haunted Mansion read this strip… :-)

    I see this as a precursor to the famous “walking bed” sequence which appears later.

    Wouldn’t “Halt!” work? (Same word in both languages, but in German you have to say it like you mean it. :-)
